DESCRIPTION:
Surprisingly plush and creamy, aromas and flavors of tart citrus lead with hints of white pear, delicious apple and a bit of lemon meringue and toasted almonds. Balanced, with moderate acidity, the brightness of the Chardonnay fruit shines through.

Chardonnay was harvested late night and early morning at the coolest part of the day, quickly to gentle pressing. A portion of the wine was fermented in stainless, with 25% in tank and 75% in French oak (20% new) for six months prior to bottling. Some 80% of the wine was allowed to undergo secondary malolactic fermentation to find the right balance, allowing a solid acid backbone to be balanced with a creamy mouthfeel and lush texture.

A juicy, full-bore style, with concentrated apple, mango and ripe pear flavors that are intensely spiced. The buttery finish is mouth-filling and quite rich tasting. Drink now through 2022.
